Tuttle, Oklahoma, Oct. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EDP Renewables North America (EDPR NA) and Connor, Clark & Lunn Infrastructure (CC&L Infrastructure) together commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Redbed Plains Wind Farm located southwest of Oklahoma City. The 99-megawatt (MW) wind farm represents an estimated capital investment of approximately $158 million and generates enough energy to power the equivalent of more than 22,000 average Oklahoma homes annually. The project has provided significant economic and environmental benefits for Grady County and across Oklahoma.

During construction, Redbed Plains created 114 full-time equivalent jobs and currently employs nine permanent team members who operate and perform regular maintenance on the site. Redbed Plains has also contributed an estimated $8 million of spending within 50 miles of the project due to the project’s development. In addition to local investments, the project has paid out more than $2.2 million to landowners through land lease payments and disbursed $5.8 million to local governments, enhancing schools, roads, infrastructure, and other essential services. Redbed Plains also saves more than 176 million gallons of water each year, which is the amount needed by conventional generation sources to produce the same amount of capacity as the wind farm.
